When Apple announced its iPad tablet device back in January, we were promised newspaper subscriptions from a number of publications, this has yet to happen. In a recent report from WSJ, Apple is concentrating more on offering a price reduction for TV shows.

Many of us would have pre-ordered the iPad solely for signing up and reading the daily newspaper on the tablet device — we just hope that Apple will not keep us waiting long, this could effect sales compared to Amazon’s Kindle.
As you would expect many of the major TV studios are not happy with Apple’s idea of a price cut, they worry that it could cost them tens of billions of dollars in subscription fees. Read more about this by visiting CNN Money.
